  • newegg Industry-leading Performance Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Chronos Series is designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface. The Chronos pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a Chronos SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Chronos series SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
  • newegg Trim Support The Chronos Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Chronos Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat the heck. . .

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I thought it was OK, although since creating a new image, my system was being glitchy. I wrote that off to the normal layering of new software.

Cons: Dead as Jacob Marley. One week and some 20 hours of stacking new software, and ironing out Outlook, and everything else it takes. My time bills out at $250 per hour. Now I will have to call 20 software companies to convince them that I am not trying to screw them. Fotunately, most of my data resides on a separate drive, halleluah! Fortunately, Comcast keeps my email for two weeks. Now I have to go through 1000 emails all over again.

Other Thoughts: I thought that I could trust an SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsSpeedy! - Death 2nd review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast SSD! Loads and transfers very quick!
3yr warranty or use limit.

Cons: None!

EDIT: I am now on my third drive. I have had two drive die each lasted about four months. Mushkin has warrantied all of them but still a waste of my time! Starts with random freezes and then a system crash reboot and the drive disappears from BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I would buy a different drive. I just purchased a Samsung 500gb srive with better reviews and seems to be a more reliable drive. I will give this third drive a try. Mushkin after three strikes you are out in my book!

1 out of 5 eggsRandom hangs/crashes

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast drive at a low price.

Cons: Ever since I installed this drive in my system I've experienced random system hangs/crashes with the following symptoms:

* Whatever application I was using at the time would hang ("Application not responding").
* I glance at the hard-drive LED and notice it is solid.
* 30-60 seconds later, either things return to normal or the hard-drive shuts down (in which case I have to reboot).
* Today I got a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR which further indicates a hard-drive problem (the page file is on the SSD). Upon pressing the physical reset button, BIOS reported that the SSD drive was down (all other drives were fine). I had to power cycle the computer in order to bring the SSD back online.

It took me 6 months to track down the problem to the SSD because of the intermittent nature of the problem.

I have just filed an RMA with Mushkin. We'll see how they respond. Hopefully the replacement won't be equally defective.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is an update to my previous review (original posted on 4/14). I received my replacement drive via the RMA process (thanks NewEgg).

As far as the Pros, there really aren't that many. The drive is working for me now, but the throughput is below average compared to other SSDs.

The price is decent for the capacity.

Cons: Slower drive compared to other SSDs.

Drive disappears from Windows occasionally.

Coming out of stand-by the drive is not recognized (I've tried other SATA and SSD drives in my Ultrabay slot and it doesn't happen with those, so not sure what's up with this drive.

Other Thoughts: Overall I would say look elsewhere for an SSD drive as there are plenty of other options.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd unit died after one day

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Other price, none

Cons: First unit DOA. Second unit worked fine for a day then died. Will RMA for store credit. Won't waste my time trying a third.

4 out of 5 eggsNot sure

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast and cheap $ per GB

Cons: I have had a few errors with this drive although I can't be sure at this point. I have had a few cases where the bios didn't see the drive or the drive just stopped responding. This is happening so infrequently that it is impossible to troubleshoot down to the motherboard, power supply or drive. It's happening like once or twice a month and I have easily corrected the problem by cycling power or unplugging the non boot drives. I hate intermittent problems. It would be so much easier if it just died. At least with Mushkins 3 year warranty, I'll just wait until it does die. If it's even the problem.

Other Thoughts: Seeing I can't narrow the problem down to the drive for sure, I'm not going to give it a bad rating yet for now.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Detected in BIOS

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: None at this point. Hopefully my RMA will provide a better unit.

Cons: I am using this drive in my Lenovo W530 Ultrabay slot (as a secondary drive for VMs). After receiving the drive, I noticed that although it was recognized, the formatting process was taking several minutes. Other drives in the ultrabay slot were only taking a few seconds to format. The drive eventually formatted and I was able to use it.

Soon after that, the drive would disappear from Windows (off and on).

In addition, I tested drive speeds and they were fairly slow compared to my other SSD I'm using for my boot device (250MB/s vs 400MB/s). Not sure if it was just this unit or of this drive is just slow.

I updated the drive firmware from Mushin's site as well as my W530 BIOS.

The SSD firmware installed successfully, but after updating my laptop BIOS, the BIOS would no longer recognize the device.

I've requested an RMA and will update my review when the new one arrives.
